Everyday when Kiara goes to school, the first thing I do is spend at least 30 minutes working on learning Russian. It is overwhelming to say the least. They don't even have the same alphabet as us. I also have a CD in the car that Kiara and I have been listening to with Russian phrases. Today was the first time Kiara had listened to any of it in a long time. We listened to it before she went to school. After she got home, out of the blue she says, 'mena zavut' (my spelling...Russian for 'My name is')! I was shocked! Then, tonight after I kissed her goodnight, she says, 'spakquoina nochee' (my spelling...Russian for 'goodnight')! Again, I couldn't believe it! She is a sponge!
This afternoon after she had said 'My name is' in Russian, she says, "I can say that to my sister." So sweet! Then, she adds, "But, when we are home, can I talk normal?" She is so funny! She cracks me up!
My BodyStep training is coming up this weekend, so if you think of me pray that I have plenty of energy. Also, I have been having some problems with my heels, so pray that my feet make it through the training, too. I am a little nervous, but I am really excited, too. It will feel great to accomplish something I have worked hard for.
